Potomac Ice and a Magenta Sky
* A Mild Sunday, Then A Little Cooler: Full Forecast *
With last week's cold weather, I knew there would be a lot of ice on the Potomac River and Tidal Basin. So, I decided to try a weekend photo shoot to capture the sunrise colors reflecting on ice. I arrived just before dawn at the Tidal Basin Saturday morning, about 6:20am, and I noticed a fast moving bank of clouds moving in from the west. I realized it would be a race to see if the sun could rise above the horizon before the clouds filled the sky and spoiled the sunrise. Unfortunately, the clouds won the race and the sunrise colors were quite subdued. I wasn't too disappointed, however, because there were at least some pastel shades of magenta and red that filtered through from the east, painting the clouds over Washington.
Keep reading for more photos from Saturday morning.
